A group for photographic vorticism.
The style grew out of Cubism, but is more closely related to Futurism in its embrace of dynamism, the machine age and all things modern (cf. Cubo-Futurism). However, Vorticism diverged from Futurism in the way it tried to capture movement in an image. In a Vorticist painting modern life is shown as an array of bold lines and harsh colours drawing the viewer’s eye into the centre of the canvas.
The name Vorticism was given to the movement by Ezra Pound in 1913, although Wyndham Lewis is usually seen as the central figure in the movement, had been producing paintings in the same style for a year or so previously.
Vorticist photographs were originally called vortographs.
